The Month of Safar during the Days of Ignorance The Muhaddithin have recorded many of the superstitions harboured by the Arabs during the Days of Ignorance. A few are mentioned below: 1. The pre-Islamic Arabs believed Safar to be a snake which lives in the stomach of a human being and when hungry, bites the person. This is the discomfort one experiences when gripped by the pangs of hunger. 2. Some said Safar are worms which originate in the liver and ribs due to which the colour of the person becomes yellow, a condition we know today as jaundice. 3. According to some, the month of Safar flanked by Muharram and Rabi al Awwal is full of calamities and misfortune. With the advent of Islam and the teachings of Sayyadina Rasoolullah (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam), all evil and incorrect beliefs common in pre-Islamic times were discarded. Incorrect Beliefs: Today too, there are some Muslims who hold incorrect beliefs regarding the month of Safar. 1. A nikah performed in this month would not be successful. 2. This month is full of misfortune and calamities. 3. To commence any important venture, business etc. during this month will bring bad luck. 4. The first to the thirteenth of Safar is ill-fortune and evil. 5. The person who distributes food or money on the 13th of Safar will be saved from its ill-fortune. 6. To celebrate the last Wednesday of Safar and regard it as a holiday. What to do: 1. To shun all types of erroneous beliefs regarding the blessed month of Safar. 2. To understand that the most unfortunate person is he who disobeys Allah Ta'ala's commandments e.g. does not perform the five daily salaah etc. It is narrated in a hadith that Rasoolullah (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) said: "Pray, 0 Allah! Cause not anyone of us to be a wretched destitute." He then asked: "Do you know who is a wretched destitute?" Upon the request of the Sahabah (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhum) he replied, "A wretched destitute is he who neglects his salaat." 3. We should understand that all conditions which befalls us, good or bad, favourable, or unfavourable are from Allah Ta'ala, (as a result of our actions). Allah Ta'ala says: " Whatever misfortune befalls you, it is due to the things your hands have wrought, and He forgives many a sin." (Surah 42 - Verse 30). This can also be confirmed by the following Hadith: Sayyadina Jabir (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu) has said that, "I have heard Sayyadina Rasoolullah (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) saying, the descending of illness and evil superstition befalling in the month of Safar is untrue."

Naath is the name given to the poetry that has been written in praise of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Many Blessed Companions (Sahaabah) were skilled in the art of writing poetry in praise of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) asked his Sahaabah if anyone of them were prepared to do Jihad with the tongue, against the disbelievers and Hazrat Hassaan bin Thaabit (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) volunteered for this. He would then stand and recite Naaths whilst Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and other Sahaabah would listen. Hazrat Aisha Siddiqa (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anha) narrates that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would place a Mimbar (pulpit) in Masjid-e-Nabawi Shareef for Hazrat Hassaan bin Thaabit (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh), so that he would stand upon it and recite poetry in praise of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), or defend Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in reply to the accusations of the kuffaar. The Beloved Rasool (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) made the following Dua for him, “O Allah, assist Hassaan through Hazrat Jibra’eel Alaihis Salaam.” [Bukhari Shareef; Shamaail-e-Tirmidhi ] Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) further stated, “Hazrat Jibra’eel (Alaihis Salaam) is with him (Hazrat Hassaan) while he answers the slander of the kuffaar against me, through poetry.” [Zarqaani, Vol. 3] A’la Hazrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) states in the love and respect of Hazrat Hassaan bin Thaabit (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh): Karam-e-Naath Ke Nazdeek Tho Kuch Door Nahi Ke Raza-e-Ajami Ho Sage Hassaan Arab Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to listen to Naath Shareef and used to bless Hazrat Hassaan bin Thaabit (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) with his kindness in such ways that sometimes Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) gave him his shawl, sometimes he prepared the Mimbar for him and sometimes he blessed him with his Duas. This means that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) becomes pleased when he hears his Naath being recited. A’la Hazrat (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) says that no one is remote from the kindness of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and hence makes a request in this verse saying that may Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) fix him, the non-Arab as the dog of Hazrat Hassaan bin Thaabit (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh), the Arab. [Sharha Hadaaiqe Bakhshish] Below is one of the beautiful and well-known verses recited by Hazrat Hassaan bin Thaabit (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh): Wa Ahsanu Minka Lam Taraqattu ‘Aini My eyes have never seen anyone more handsome than you Wa Ajmalu Minka Lam Talidin Nisaa’u Nor has any woman ever given birth to a more beautiful child than you Khuliqta Mubarra am Min Kulli ‘Aibin You have been created free from all faults and imperfections Ka Annaka Qad Khuliqta Kama Tashaa’u It is as if you have been created as you desired to be created From this couplet we can see that the Sahaabah believed that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is perfect, yet we have misled sects in Islam today that claim to be Muslims but they insult Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and try to find faults in him in every way. May Allah Ta’ala destroy such insolent people and keep us away from them. Hazrat Anas (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) reports that when Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) went to Makkah for Umratul Qaza, Hazrat Abdullah ibn Rawahah (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh), throwing his sword over his shoulder and holding the reins of the camel of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), was walking ahead of him reciting these couplets, “O non-believers, clear his path and leave today. Do not prohibit Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) from entering Makkah as you had done last year for today we shall smite you. We will take such action against you that we will separate the brain from its body. And we will make a friend forget a friend.” Hazrat Umar (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) stopped him and said, “O Ibn Rawahah, in the presence of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and the Haram Shareef you are reciting poetry?” Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “Leave him O Umar, these couplets are more forceful than showering arrows onto them.” In another Hadith, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has also stated, “A Mu’min makes Jihad with a sword and also with the tongue. This Jihad of the tongue is also like showering arrows. [Shamaa’il-e- Tirmidhi] It is concluded from these Ahadith that poetry is also a form of Jihad. From this we can understand that A’la Hazrat (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) was doing nothing but acting on these Ahadith and following the Sunnah of the Blessed Sahaabah when he wrote numerous Naaths in a time when Wahabism was rife and the Munafiqeen were trying to slander the blessed personality of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). The Glorious Qur’an itself is full of the praises of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). If one has to look at the Holy Qur’an closely, volumes could be written on how Allah Ta’ala honours and praises Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in His Words. However, a few verses in honour and praise of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) are being presented here. “And We have exalted for you your remembrance” [Surah 94, Verse 4] “And We sent you not, but as a mercy unto all the worlds.” [Surah 21, Verse 107] “Whoso obeys the Messenger, has indeed obeyed Allah” [Surah 4, Verse 80] “Undoubtedly, you have the best in the following of the Messenger, for him who hopes for Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much.” [Surah 33, Verse 21] “We are seeing the turning of your face towards heaven repeatedly; necessarily then We will turn you towards that Qiblah which pleases you.” [Surah 2, Verse 144] “O believers! Raise not your voices above the voice of the Prophet and speak not aloud in presence of him as you shout to one another, lest your works become vain while you are unaware.” [Surah 49, Verse 2] “Assuredly there has come to you a messenger from among yourselves, heavy upon him is your suffering; ardently desirous of your welfare, and to Muslims is most Kind and Merciful.” [Surah 9, Verse 128] “And he is not miserly as to the disclosing of the unseen.” [Surah 81, Verse 24] It is for this reason that A’la Hazrat Imam Ahle Sunnat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) states in one of his Naath: Ay Raza Khud Sahib-e-Qur’an hain Maddaahe Huzoor Tujh se Kab Mumkin hain phir Midhat Rasoolullah Ki In this verse A’la Hazrat (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) says, “O Ahmad Raza, no matter how much you praise Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) you will never be able to duly and properly praise him because when his Rabb Himself has praised him, who then can do justice in praising Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)?” In fact his name itself is Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) which means the one who is excessively praised. [Sharha Hadaaiqe Bakhshish] When Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) reached Madina Shareef, the people of Banu Najaar stood on the roofs of their homes and the children welcomed Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) by greeting him with the following verses of poetry: Tala’al Badru Alaina Min Thaniyyatil Wadaa’i A crescent-moon dawns upon us from the valley of Wadaa Wajaba Shukru Alaina Mada’a Lillaahi Daa’i Gratitude to Allah is necessary upon us for as long as the supplicator to Allah supplicates [Zarqaani, Vol. 1] Hazrat Imam Zainul Aabideen (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) who is the son of Hazrat Imam Hussain (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) and was one of the greatest Aabids of his era said a few stanzas of Naath Shareef when he was returning to Madina Shareef after the Battle of Karbala. Two of those stanzas are presented here: Innilti Ya Reehas Saba Yauman Ilaa Ardil Haram Balligh Salaami Rowdatan Feehan Nabiyyul Muhtaram O Winds! If someday you pass by the sacred land, then pass my Salaams before the Rauza-e-Aqdas where the most exalted Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) rests Ya Rahmatallil Aalameen Adrik li Zainil Aabideen Mahboosi Aydiz Zaalimeen fil Maukabi wal Muzdaham O Mercy unto all the Worlds! Assist Zainul Aabideen Who is standing alone and in difficulty amongst the tyrants [Tazkira-e-Mashaaikh-e-Qadriya Razviya] Apart from this incident further showing the permissibility of Naath Shareef, we see also the belief of Hazrat Imam Zainul Aabideen (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) that it is permissible to ask Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) for help. Yet we get ignorant people today that say it is Shirk to ask Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) for anything. Balaghal Ula Bi Kamaalihi He reached all heights through his perfection Kashafad Duja Bi Jamaalihi He removed all darkness through his beautiful reflection Hasunath Jamee’u Khisaalihi Perfect was his each and every action Sallu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Send benedictions on him and his family When Shaikh Saadi (Rahmatullah Alaih) was writing these verses, he had no idea about what to write as the fourth line. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then appeared to him in a dream and ordered him to write “Sallu Alaihi Wa Aalihi” as the fourth line. Again we see here the approval by Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) of poetry written in his praise and we also see the blessings that one receives from them. Mere Ash’aar he you laa’iq tehseen ay Khushtar Ke har misra he haasile Naath me qand mukarrar ka This is a couplet written by the Qutub of Mauritius, Fakhrul Islam, Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Ibrahim Khushtar Siddiqui Qadri Razvi (Rahmatullah Alaih), and he states here that the only reason his poetry is deserving of acclamation is because every line has been written in praise of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). In other words it is only because of the fact that those verses have praised Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that they have become praiseworthy. From the proofs presented above we can therefore see that to listen to Naath Shareef is the Sunnah of our Beloved Master Muhammad Mustafa (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and to listen as well as to recite Naath-e-Paak is the Sunnah of the Blessed Sahaabah. Finally, Allah Ta’ala states in the Holy Qur’an, “And We have exalted for you your remembrance” [Surah 94, Verse 4] When Allah Ta’ala Himself has exalted the remembrance of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) who on earth then will have the power to lower it? The Munafiqeen can try as much as they want to lower the dignity and remembrance of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) but they will never succeed. And to answer them we will present an apt couplet from a Naath written by A’la Hazrat (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) in which he writes: Khaaq Ho Jaaye ‘Adoo Jal Kar Magar Hum Tho Raza Dam Main Jab tak Dam hain Zikr Unka Sunaate Jaayenge O the enemies of the remembrance of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)! You can burn and be reduced to ashes but as long as there is life present in my body I will continue to make the remembrance of my Master Muhammad Mustafa (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). [Sharha Hadaaiqe Bakhshish] May Allah Ta’ala guide us in the footsteps of the Blessed Sahaabah and like A’la Hazrat (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) requested in his Naath, may we also be considered as the dogs of Hazrat Hassaan bin Thaabit (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh), Ameen.

Sahih bukhari,Volume 2, Book 13, Number 51: Narrated Abu Huraira R.A: The Prophet (Sallallahu alyhi wa sallam) said, “When it is a Friday, the angels stand at the gate of the mosque and keep on writing the names of the persons coming to the mosque in succession according to their arrivals. The example of the one who enters the mosque in the earliest hour is that of one offering a camel (in sacrifice). The one coming next is like one offering a cow and then a ram and then a chicken and then an egg respectively. When the Imam comes out (for Jumua prayer) they (i.e. angels) fold their papers and listen to the Khutba.”

Asallam alaykum Yaa Ummah Globally the Muslim Ummah is in a crisis. From Australia in the south to Canada in the north, from China in east to USA in the west we find Islamophobia raising its venomous head. “War on Terror”, persecution, oppression, discrimination, etc against innocent and peace loving Muslims has become the order of the day. The raining of missiles on innocent civilians in Palestine-Gaza , the merciless killings in Syria, ethnic cleansing in Myanmar, torture and rape in Afghanistan and Iraq, war in Somalia, Chechnya etc. The list is extensive... As Muslims we should not turn a blind eye and be apathetic to the sufferings of millions of our fellow brothers and sisters globally. We should not only feel the pain in our hearts, but should constructively engage ourselves in physically assisting the Ummah with whatever means we have at our disposal. Allah Ta’ala says in the Noble Qur’aan: “ Indeed, Muslims are brothers.”(Qur’an: Al Hujurat:10) The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) has emphatically stated that "No one of you becomes a true believer until he likes for his brother what he likes for himself".(Hadith-Bukhari & Muslims) We are ONE UMMAH, if the finger feels a pain the whole body feels the pain. It is our duty to share the pain, responsibilities, burdens and needs of our fellow brothers and sisters. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “The example of Muslims in their mutual love, mercy and sympathy is like that of a body; if one of the organs is afflicted, the whole body responds with sleeplessness and fever.”(Hadith-Muslim) Our ancestors in Islam, the esteemed Companions of Muhammad Salallaho alaihe wassallam demonstrated practically what was meant by true love for our brothers(sisters) in Islam. Hadhrat Abu-Jahm-bin-Huzaifah (Radhiyallaho anho) narrates:"During the battle of Yarmuk, I went out in search of my cousin, who was in the forefront of the fight. I also took some water with me for him. I found him in the very thick of battle in the last throes of death. I advanced to help him with the little water I had. But, soon, another sorely wounded soldier beside him gave a groan, and my cousin averted his face, and beckoned me to take the water to that person first. I went to this other person with the water. He turned out to be Hishaam bin Abil Aas (Radhiyallaho anho). But I had hardly reached him, when there was heard the groan of yet another person lying not very far off. Hisham (Radhiyallaho anho) too motioned me in his direction. Alas, before I could approach him, he had breathed his last. I made all haste back to Hishaam and found him dead as well. Thereupon, I hurried as fast as I could to my cousin, and, lo! in the meantime he had also joined the other two." Many an incident of such self-denial and heroic sacrifice is recorded in the books of Hadith. This is the last word in self-sacrifice, that each dying person should forego slaking his own thirst in favour of his other needy brother. May Allah bless their souls with His choicest favours for their sacrifice for others even at the time of death, when a person has seldom the sense to make a choice. WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP THE UMMAH? Every bit of help counts! No single bit of assistance, no matter how minute or what form it may take is insignificant. There was a King who had a festival. One evening he asked everyone to bring a jug of milk and pour it into a huge container so everyone, even the poor, could enjoy it the next day. A certain man thought that if he poured a jug of water instead of milk into the container it won’t be noticed in the dark and he really thought that it won’t make a significant difference. So he poured a jug of water. When he came the next day, he surprisingly witnessed that the huge container was almost full of water. It was quite clear that in his community everyone thought the same. All we need as an Ummah is to play our “small” part. If we each do our “little” then combined it will Insha Allah be a lot! The “little” we do will Insha Allah go a long way. Here are some practical ways we can show our genuine love for the Allah Ta’ala, Muhammad (peace be upon him) and our fellow Muslims who are suffering. 1. DU’AA(SUPPLICATION): Indeed no condition or situation can ever improve without the Help of Allah. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said that; “Dua is a weapon of a believer.” (Hadith-Al Hakim). Du’aa should be made individually and collectively. Do it at home with the family and also in the Masjid. Children should be encouraged to also join in. The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him) encouraged the Ummah to read Qunoot-e-Naazilah supplication (dua) at the time of distress and calamity. (Hadith- Abu Dawood). Imaams of Masjids should also read the Qunoot-e-Naazilah in the congregational prayers of Fajr and to ask the Almighty’s Guidance and intervention to save and protect the Ummah. Also keep fast and perform optional prayer. 2. CONTRIBUTE: We should generously contribute in whatever way possible. The Messenger of Allah Ta’ala (peace be upon) said that: “Charity (Sadaqah) does not decrease the wealth” (Hadith-Muslim) and he (pbuh) also said that daily two angels offer Du’aa, “O Allah, compensate those who spend, and bring ruin to those who withhold”. (Hadith- Bukhari). Encourage our family members to contribute from their own savings even if it just a few cents. In this way worry and concern for the Ummah will be inculcated in them. Search for credible Islamic relief organisations operating in areas where our funds are most needed. Be wary of bogus collectors. Be pro-active in raising funds. The Messenger of Allah Ta’ala (peace be upon) is reported to have said: “Indeed, Allah blesses certain people with special bounties for the benefit of other people. As long as they benefit others, Allah continues His bounties upon them but when they stop benefitting others, Allah takes these bounties back from them and transfers to others.” (Hadith-Tabarani) 3. JOIN: We need to be physically involved. The best is to be at your Muslim brothers or sisters’ side when they really need you the most. Distance, race, colour, social status etc should never be a barrier in assisting the Ummah. Join and engage ourselves in those activities that will support and bring genuine relief to the distressed Ummah. Be cautious that our activities are always in compliance with the Laws of Allah Ta’ala. 4. EDUCATE: Be pro-active and educate yourself. Be knowledgeable on the subject. Our families and communities should be educated about the plight of the Ummah. Masjids, media, schools etc should be used to for this purpose. Keep a vigilant eye on the news outlets; magazines etc. and respond timeously to their bias comments and views. Forward pertinent and relevant articles you come across to the International and local media outlets.Using the world atlas or internet, show our children where are the affected parts of the Ummah. Do not support those that directly or indirectly assist the oppression and persecution of the Muslim Ummah. 5. CHANGE: For meaningful transformation to come and conditions to drastically improve it is necessary for the Ummah to bring about a reformation and abandon all types of sin and evil. Allah says: “Verily, ALLAH does not change the condition of people until they change what is within themselves.”(Qur’an Sura ar-Ra`d 13:11). Therefore the Muslim Ummah as a whole has to return to the path of Haq (Truth) and give up Baatil (falsehood) and in so doing will attract the Devine Mercy and Help of Allah Ta’ala. 6. HOPE: Always be hopeful and never be despondent. Allah Ta’ala will help even though it may be after some time. Often the media tries to create hopelessness and many Muslims are left in despair. It may seem that the death of millions of innocents is now inevitable, but we must continue to strive our utmost to defend them and to spread the truth about these immoral actions perpetrated against innocent Muslims. Above all, we must remember that Allah Most High has control over all things and can provide help in ways we do not even understand. Not even the ‘greatest’ superpower can overpower Him! No falsehood is to remain forever. No oppression is to remain forever. After hardship comes ease. Insha Allah the difficulty of the Muslim nation will come to end and tomorrow will be definitely better than today. We should have HOPE in the ALL encompassing MERCY and HELP of Allah Most High under all circumstances, whether it be in victory, defeat, happiness or sadness. The Messenger of Allah(peace be upon him) has said that whosoever helps a Muslim at the time of loss of honour and humility; will receive Help from Allah when he is in need of help.(Hadith-Abu Dawood) Most importantly remember the Muslim Ummah is ONE! Let us not forget that behind every dark cloud there is a silver lining…
